HUNGER ACTION MONTH
There are lots of ways to fight hunger in your community. Here are three specific ways to partner with COM in September.
COM serves about 500 families every month through our food pantry. That's a lot of food! During the 30 days of September, we are asking individuals to consider giving $30 ($1/day) to our food pantry. Through our partnership with Ozarks Food Harvest, we can buy about 5 lbs of food with that $1. Given many of us spend more than that on coffee, this is a really easy way to give back to your community and fight hunger!
COM is sponsoring a Can-struction Contest on Sept. 26 and 27. Gather a team (your church, business, class, family, etc.) and collect canned good and non-perishable food. Then use those items to create a sculpture at a location of your choosing. We'll come by on Sept. 26 and 27 to judge your sculpture. The winner receives free ice cream from 3G's Frozen Custard! After the contest, we'll collect all the food items and give them out in our pantry. A great way to support your community and have fun all at once!
Teams must register before Sept. 21 to be eligible. Registration and rules can be found here.
